Hi Christoph,

Thanks for the submissions.  One consistent pattern I've noticed about this
community is that it tends to slow down during the northern-hemisphere
summer.  As far as process, you got it exactly right.  A trunk committer
will review them and either commit them to trunk or propose a change.
After a few iterations of this, board will vote you to have trunk access
directly, but it's still recommended to start out enhancements in the Inbox

In addition to reviewing code, what I generally like to do is put "time" to
work _for_ me, by loading people's Inbox submissions into my image and just
running and doing development with them for a while.  This tends to
exercise the usability and also expose possible corner cases.  It also
ensures they won't get "forgotten" before the next Squeak release, because
they're marked a dirty package in the Monticello browser.

I'm sure someone will review them pretty soon.  Thanks and welcome to the

 - Chris
